Do your wallet a favor

Having a reliable car to drive around Evansville, Indiana, shouldn’t have to break the bank. That’s why the Kia Rio is priced competitively in the subcompact car segment, with the 2020 model starting at just $15,850.* But the savings don’t stop there. The Kia Rio has always been known for its efficiency, and the most recent edition achieves an impressive EPA-estimated 33 mpg in the city, 41 on the highway, and 36 combined.**

Impressive technology

Just because a car is affordable doesn’t mean it needs to cut corners on the modern tech you need and want. To start, recent models come standard with a 7-inch touch-screen infotainment display, complete with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® smartphone connectivity. With available UVO eServices, you can even use your smartphone to request roadside assistance, view vehicle diagnostics, schedule maintenance, and even use GPS to help you remember where you parked your car. Finally, you can drive with confidence when you equip your Kia Rio with Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist — a system that can automatically apply the brakes if it detects an impending accident.

Small but mighty

The Kia Rio may be compact, but it has everything you need in a first car. Seating for up to five means you’ll be able to drive your friends to your favorite restaurant in Evansville without worry, while 33.5 inches of rear legroom means they’ll never complain about feeling cramped. The Rio even offers a spirited ride thanks to its 1.6-liter inline four-cylinder engine, which produces 120 horsepower.

You only have one chance to choose a first car, so make it one to remember — a Kia Rio. Experience it today at Evansville Kia.
